About the Author Lisa Ziegler is an author, accomplished speaker, and the owner of the Gardener’s Workshop, a thriving small market farm. She began her career selling cut flowers to local florists and Colonial Williamsburg, a business that soon grew to include florists, supermarkets, farmer’s markets, a garden-share program, and a subscription service and later expanded into selling the tools, supplies, and seeds that she used in her own garden.

A garden where beneficial creatures come for the flowers but stay for the pest!I share in this book why flowers are the missing piece of the chain of life in many gardens. Flowers attract pollinators, beneficial insects and other good creatures to the garden that provide nature's best and most powerful pest control, pollination, and more.There is no better way to bring flowers into the vegetable patch then with a cutting garden. A perfect match, harvesting fresh cut flowers each week alongside the vegetables keeps fresh blooms coming all season long. This constant presence of flowers in the garden keeps all these good guys we have attracted right where we need them, in the garden.Vegetables Love Flowers includes why to grow flowers, how-to grow and keep a cutting garden, what flowers to grow, and most importantly--- how I garden without using pesticides that can harm and kill the very beneficial creatures we want to live in the garden.
